Dust jacket notes: "Although women have always played an integral part in farming and agricultural production, the sexual division of labor in the United States remains unchanged. Today, economic, social, and political changes in agriculture are affecting the lives of millions, both men and women, but it is still men who control the land, the cash crops, the machinery, and the workers. They are the visible farmers. Yet women's contribution to agricultural labor is substantial, and interest in the role of women in agriculture is rapidly expanding. Through analysis of in-depth interviews with contemporary farm women and painstaking historical research. The Invisible Farmers documents the extent of women's participation as farmers, wage laborers, and subsistence producers within the context of the changing structure of agriculture and the pervasiveness of domestic ideology. Dr. Sachs employs both an historical and a feminist perspective to explain why women in agricultural production have been consistently overlooked and undervalued, and she offers practical suggestions for reform."

In this book, farm women in the northeastern United States describe how they got into farming and became successful entrepreneurs despite the barriers they encountered in agricultural institutions, farming communities, and even their own families. Their strategies for obtaining land and labor and developing successful businesses offer models for other aspiring farmers. Pulling down the barriers that women face requires organizations and institutions to become informed by what the authors call a feminist agrifood systems theory (FAST).
